Swansea's confidence received a timely boost in midweek as they salvaged a last-gasp point at Emirates Stadium thanks to Mathieu Flamini's 90th-minute own goal.

However, Garry Monk's side are now without a win in six games and are just five points clear of the relegation zone.

Beating fellow strugglers Norwich at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday would go a long way to securing their survival, and Michu believes it is just as important a match as the Capital One Cup final against Bradford City last season which delivered the first major trophy in the club's history.

"Saturday against Norwich is one we still need to win," the Spaniard told the South Wales Evening Post.

"We have had too many games without a win, we are at home, with our crowd, we need to win.

"It's a massive, massive game. For me it's like the game against Bradford at Wembley, a final we have to win."

Michu is in contention to face Norwich after making his first start since the middle of September in the draw with Arsenal.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
